Yep. That would be me. I have to admit that I'm a little bit nervous, and I'm imagining all the things that could go wrong. Read: That I could do wrong. But if I'm honest, I'm more excited than nervous. And I've been telling everyone, loudly, that I GET TO DRIVE A FLOAT DURING THE THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE!
Expect a photo gallery tomorrow ... Though, of course, I won't be taking pictures while driving. Hmmm, perhaps there will also be a top 10 lessons learned from driving a float. Let me ponder.
In the meantime, if you're interested in parade details:
